What it is

A string involves tying moves into other moves, but only refers to sequences where it is possible for the opponent to escape somewhere on the way (however small the chance). Inescapable sequences fall under the designation of ‘combo’.

The primary uses are for meaties, when you have the advantage, when you want to break down the opponent’s block, and so forth; you use it to press on the attack.
